May 4, 1970.
The day is etched in Greg Davis’ mind.
It’s the date of the Kent State University shootings, also known as the Kent State Massacre, when four students were killed and nine others injured by the Ohio National Guard during an on-campus Vietnam War protest.
Davis, a Carolina Shores town commissioner, was a 19-year-old freshman at Kent State when the shots rang out. Not only did he hear it, he witnessed the incident from his third-story dormitory room.
